In the last 25 years, the golf tournament has raised more than $2.5 million to support children and families in need through the Desert Mission programs: Food Bank, Community Health Center, Children’s Dental Clinic, Lincoln Learning Center, and Marley House Behavioral Health Clinic.
Last year, 35,000 individuals received assistance through Desert Mission’s health and human service programs. The Food Bank distributed 36,391 emergency food boxes and more than 3,100 children received low cost care at the Children’s Dental Clinic. “In 2011, we saw a 15 percent increase in people seeking assistance from Desert Mission services,” said Marcia Mintz, CEO of the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation. “We invite you to share in our efforts, and together, we can help change lives and strengthen our community.”
